offer the boston marathon participants an tun to cross a finish line at halftime. >> president obama used his weekly address to tell americans to praise the city of boston for standing strong in the face of last week's bombings. >> if anyone wants to know who we are? what america is? how we respond to evil and terror? that is it. severallessly, compassionately and unafraid. >> president and police obama attended a memorial service in boston on thursday for the bombing victims. in this morning's dress the president said "boston's unwaivering spirit remained undaunted in the face of terror." the president told the people of boston the rest of the nation is with them in their time of trouble. >>> here in the bay area love and support is pouring in for a martinez boy who was wounded in the boston bombings. ktvu's john sasaki shows us how friends and neighbors are raising money for aaron hern. >> reporter: it was a great day for a work in briones park, but this day was about photography for a good cause. >> oh, pretty. >> it's a great family and we just want to help them out. >> nico
think mitt romney lostsome. >> guest: because if you look at exit polling, most americans believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh o
. the legalization if you're an american and overseas and participating -- >> the obama administration has used this legal argument to justify their drone attacks. it's not unfamiliar to them. >> about a year ago or so, the nypd came under fire for some listening in this -- using surveillance techniques on certain groups. >> in new jersey. >> in new jersey. >> right. >> there was a thing going back and forth between new york, new jersey, whether they were allowed to do this or not. with all this going on, aren't we making the case for more of that rather than less of that? >> yeah, we have to do more of it. it's very uncomfortable. it's very -- none of us want to give up any of our privacy, understandable. the reality is this is how you stop them. this is the only way you have to stop them. that is getting the information in advance. they're doing everything they can to hide what they're doing. law enforcement, intelligence agencies, they have to be able to do everything they can to intrude into them to find out what they're doing. >> mayor, as far as i can tell, we knew about nidal malik hasan
, like mr. leahy and all the people on the democratic side. the thing because of president obama's direct this involvement with black americans and jobs and his abandonment of us, do you think that there could be a backlash in the 2014 election, where the 93% or the portion of the 93% of the people that voted for him in the election would deny him the president of gaining the house? there is this message a foot in the black community, because we know that he has not done anything for black americans. thank you so much for taking my call. i love c-span. host: thank you for your call and comments. guest: >> on one hand you have the argument, people saying if you give a pathway to citizenship, they are going to take jobs away from people who should be able to have those jobs. the counter argument is, these people are often working jobs that others would not want or be able to have. that is a tricky situation. it is very interesting and theking how, despite unemployment rate that is a little under 8%, we have now seen some polling with leaders on capitol hill, all the stars seem to line to ad
? >> yes. a problem for the obama administration but didn't begin just with the obama administration. going back even to the nixon administration we have american administrations that soft petal arab terror, arab islamic terror and cover up for it. you know that the 9/11 bombers one of the reasons they were able the get on board was because there was a rule against profiling. it came up in 9/11 commission. the former secretary of the navy talked about it. the fact they were only allowed to ask two people on each flight if they were arab, two people if they were black, two people if they were white, various categories. that's how they got on the plane. this is a real problem. we shouldn't be worried about giving offense to terrorists, we should take the offense against terrorists. >> tucker: the idea, then, apparently is by giving offense we invite more terror attacks, in other words it's our fault. our bias draws the attack. isn't that the underpinning of the world view? >> this is like the battered women's sib drome. somebody rapes you because you are too attractive? that is not the reason
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
is represent article is the progressive school of thought. when barack obama talk body fundmentally changing the united states of america, this is what he was talking about. it is changing the narrative from one of american exceptionalism personal responsibility to a american asist -- racist and serving the white manner class. >> is it terrorist to say you hope it is a white person. >> no, that only goes one way. a leftist can project his own racism and get away with it if andrew brightbar was alive today he would have died laughing reading the comum . you might have a photoof david sarota throwing a jab . i think brightbar was great. he found there nothing funnier, that is amazing. there is nothing funnier than someone who takes themselves seriously. no one would pick that picture. it plays off an anti-american sentiment. sirota believes that america can't handle anything but a white terrorist and somehow be thrown in a wild back lash and go burning buildings and invading countryings. it -- countries. that is entirely opposite of how andrew lived life. >> to follow up. andrew brightbar was
. so it's also the perceived threat from pakistan inside the obama administration receded, and so people move to yemen, and so after that 2011 time frame, which was really the sort of the nadir relationship of the u.s.-pakistan, the members of american undercover officers i think has gone down significantly. >> how many of the paramilitary groups spoke of earlier are in pakistan? how are they funded? how significant are they? >> the american -- >> no, the pakistan side. >> well, so if you, this is another subject of dispute. the pakistani government has, you know, denies that it does -- has any support, and i think there is legitimate concern while there was once support for these troops that were used as a force for india, have carried out attacks inside pakistan, and so whether it's the pakistani pal ban rather than the afghan taliban which is what is known, they carry out on pakistani soil so i think there is this fear among pakistani security officials that this monster's been created that has, to some degree, gone back on its creator and hurt and killed thousands and thousand
